Gregory Anderson pleaded guilty on Tuesday in connection with a stabbing that happened at The Boulders in January.
Anderson, 53, pleaded guilty to burglary and aggravated assault. He’ll be sentenced on Aug. 11.
According to police, Markese Roberson of Salt Lake City and Anderson of Provo kicked in a door at the complex and then beat and stabbed two people inside — 43-year-old Catrina Rose of Provo and 44-year-old Christopher Dixon of Salt Lake City. During the assault 35-year-old Nicole Uhlig walked into the apartment and also was attacked by the men. Rose was able to get away and call 911 while the suspects were occupied with Uhlig.
Three months after a woman told police a man wouldn’t let her out of his car, Provo police arrested Rue Lewis on Monday on a charge of aggravated kidnapping.
Lewis, 80, reportedly offered the woman a ride on a snowy day while she was waiting for a bus. But instead of taking her to University Mall, he gripped her leg tight and wouldn’t let her out. When he eventually stopped, she was able to run.
Orem police say a man shoplifted at Shopko on June 26, then ran from police and crashed into a UTA bus.
Police say the 36-year-old man was seen leaving the store in a blue Ford Taurus, and was spotted by an officer, who pursued him before a supervisor called it off. The driver kept going fast, though, ended up hitting a bus at 800 E. University Parkway and then tried to get away on foot. Officers caught up with him and his 14-year-old passenger (his son) and took him to the Utah County Jail. Officers took the teen to Slate Canyon Youth Detention Center.
Orem police are asking for help in identifying a man who pulled out in front of a motorcycle, causing the bike to crash. The man was driving a dark-colored Ford truck and police got surveillance photos of him from a nearby business. If you recognize the man, call police at (801) 229-7070.
